MAX-CSD10 Video Decoder
This unit (FG2178-72) is engineered to provide real-time decoding of streamed digital
video content out as Composite and S-Video signals for distribution onto external
display devices such as a television, plasma screen, or projector, and video display-
capable devices such as AMX Modero Touch Panels.
The rear Ethernet port supports IEEE 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet (POE) which
enables DC power to be supplied to this device over the unused pairs of wires on the
connected Ethernet cable. FIG. 1 shows the front and rear panel views.

Wiring Installation Procedures
The wiring parameters for the PWR, Serial, and Ethernet ports are described in detail
within the following sections.
Wiring The Power Connector
Use an external power supply (see Power Requirements) to provide power to the
MAX-CSD10 through the rear 2-pin 3.5 mm mini-Phoenix connector (FIG. 1). The
incoming PWR and GND cable from the power supply must be connected to the
corresponding locations within the PWR connector.
Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) Connection
Caution: If using Power-over-Ethernet as your source of power, you must FIRST
ground the unit to provide ESD protection. Install only a single wire into the (-) GND
side of the rear green 2-pin PWR connector, and then connect the terminal-end of this
same wire to a grounded source. It is recommended that the length of this wire
NOT exceed 6 ft. (1.83 m).
Any 802.3af-compliant POE switch (such as the NXA-ENET24 POE) can
automatically detect the 802.3af-compliant MAX device by its authenticated POE
signature and sense its required load before turning on DC power to the POE Ethernet
port.
Note: Power-over-Ethernet connections work with all existing Category 3, 4, 5, 5e or 6
network cabling, including patch cables and patch-panels, outlets, and other
connecting hardware, without requiring modification.
Reading the Ethernet LEDs
The MAX-CSD10 uses a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to provide 10/100 network
connectivity between the encoder and the network (FIG. 2).
